Arturo Vidal, the Juventus midfielder, does not intend to decide his future until he returns to Italy from his holidays.

The 27-year-old has been afforded a break by his current club after competing in the World Cup for Chile, although he continues to be followed by stories linking him with moves to Real Madrid or Manchester United this summer.

Those rumours intensified earlier this month when Antonio Conte elected to step down as head coach in Turin. He has since been replaced by Massimiliano Allegri and Vidal is expected to meet with the Italian first before confirming whether or not he wants to move on. The midfielder first arrived at Juventus in 2011 following a spell with Bayer Leverkusen and has won the Serie A title on three successive seasons.

"It's difficult to speak of other teams when you are already at a top club," said Vidal, who has three years remaining on his contract at the Turing club. "I have won the Serie A title three times and I respect my team-mates. I have heard about the interest shown by Madrid and United in me but there is someone [his agent] who deals with this. The only thing on my mind on is my holiday."
